Star Wars BattlefrontEdit
It is one of the few weapons in the game that is only a power up. Like most of the other weapons, this rifle never appeared in the Original Trilogy.
To use the weapon, players must charge it up until the dashes showing the power form into a circle. Once the weapon's fire button is released, the rifle releases a condensed sphere of ion energy that kills enemy players on impact. It also destroys turrets and droids, as well as damaging Vehicles.
This weapon's accuracy is determined on whether or not the player is aiming down their sights. If fired from the hip, it will have a high chance of going past the target and instead hitting part of the map. If aimed down the sights however, the sphere will always go into the direction it's aimed at.
The Disruptor Rifle also makes an appearance in the Galactic Assault mode of the 2017 installment to the Battlefront series. It is used as an objective to destroy the CIS MTT from reaching the Royal Palace in the city of Theed on Naboo.
